Does this card supports my laptop?

Recommended Posts

silviana

I am willing to buy 9600mGT from here: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...em=180298030911

does this card support my laptop?

mine is ASUS A8Sc with T7300 2.0GHz CPU, 3GB RAM

I assumed that A8Sc supports MXM-II.

Another question:

After I bought this card, does my CPU high enough to support 9600?

and my original one is 8400m, will it performs much better after I bought 9600?

what are the grades in 3DMARK of those cards?

By the way, I really dont get what means by "vbios".

Does video cards have bios? I am confused with those nouns, I assumed that I only have to install the heat sticker and the new graphics card will performs will....am I wrong? :)

and I just heard that 9600m GT's performance only has 5%~10% increased from 8600m GT, but 9600m is almost 100 bucks more expensive than 8600m GT, is that worth....?

Or should I buy the 8600 one instead?

the Asus A8Sc has a 14" size. The ONLY notebook that I known of that size that supports a 8600M GT it's a zepto.

you can't fit an elephant into a car.

even if the card would fit in it (extremely unlikely) you wouldn't have the power supply to support a 8600M GT and even if you had the power (extremely unlikely) the notebook couldn't handle all the heat generated by the 8600M GT and even if it could (extremely unlikely) you probably would have problems with the bios (extremely likely to happen)

the answer is almost for sure: you can't upgrade it.

What you should buy? a new notebook, this time with mxm support.

thanks for answering, that really solved my confusion

so where can I get a mxm laptop and how much does it use to be?

it depends on what you need, what use you will give to the notebook, etc.

keep in mind that only about 1% of the notebooks can upgrade the graphic card.

resuming: companies don't like mxm because they would lose a lot of money by just selling graphic cards then just selling a new notebook. for the costumer yes it would be great and it would save a lot of money.

for upgradable graphic card solutions you only have options for 15"/17" notebooks.

Could you recommend some 15" low price but with good looking upgradable laptop for me? (17" is way too heavy)

Hope I can get one from ebay :)

It really depends on what you want from the notebook. And there's no warranties about upgrading a gpu.

And there's no such a thing as a 15" low price with a good gpu.

check this:

Mobile-Graphics-Cards-Benchmarks

http://www.notebookcheck.net/Mobile-Graphi...44.0.html"

the zepto Nox A14 (14inch with 9600M GT (maybe upgradable)):

http://www.zepto.com/Shop/Notebook.aspx?notebookid=1280

you got several ones 15" with 9600M GT (some maybe upgradable)

better than that you have the 15" Clevo M860TU (9800M GTS (maybe upgradable))

http://www.clevo.com.tw/en/products/prodin...p?productid=122

better only can be found on 17" notebooks

I realized that the best way is to get a desktop :)

High performance, small and light laptop = extremely expensive.
